Track star Sha’Carri Richardson hits red carpet at ESPY Awards, first public outing since Olympic ban

American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson made a splash on the red carpet at the ESPY Awards for her first public appearance since testing positive for marijuana at the Team USA Olympic track and field trials in June.

Richardson, 21, donned a black and silver open-back gown for the event on Saturday evening in New York City.

It came just days after the Tuesday announcement that she will not be representing the US at this year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo.

She had previously accepted a one-month ban on participating in events after testing positive for cannabis, but the suspension was set to end before the 4×100-meter relay event, leading some to hope she could still compete.
